Google's Diversity Update

Katharine McDonough – February 22nd, 2018

Google has been getting a lot of flack recently for its lack of diversity. From a controversial memo that has been circulating in the media to the dismal number of non-asian people of color, that criticism may not be unwarranted. This shortcoming for Google is especially surprising given that the search engine amasses information about the entire world for all of its people every second of the day. You would think that a company responsible for delivering such an infinite variety of information would itself be a diverse place to work.
